LATEST FROM EUROPE[per redter’s agency.] The Panama Canal. London, Dec. 16. A dispatch from the United States Secretary of State to Mr Lowell, Minister to London, on the subject of the projected Panama Canal, was published to-day. Mr Blaine dwells in forcible language on the growth of American interests in the Pacific, and draws attention to the solicitude which has been shown by England to control the route to India, via the Suez Canal. He asserts the right of the United States against that of European Powers to control the Isthmus of Panama, and points out that such control would offer the absolute neutrality of she I

canal. The dispatch concludes by stating that the claims of America cancelled everything which might be deemed to forbid her fortifying her right to the control of the projected highway between the Atlantic and Pacific.
